Release Highlights



 

Data Exploration


 

Data Analyzer


 
Print Repetitive Dimension Members as Setting in Export Dialog

In the data analyzer export dialog, users can now choose to print repetitive member names of a dimension. This option is unselected by default unless the user has chosen to show repetitive member names via the context menu in the table. This option can be set to all supported export files (Microsoft Excel, PDF and CSV files). (SAP Road Map Explorer)


 
Dimension Groups Support in Builder Panel

In the data analyzer builder panel users can now see the dimension groups information from the SAP Analytics Cloud model or the live backend. If the SAP Analytics Cloud model is built on a live model, by default the settings of the SAP Analytics Cloud model are respected otherwise the backend settings are considered.
